Re: how to get back on Sailnet moderators take notice!

I like it here, the drinks are bigger and cheaper than they are at the VFW hall, and the furniture way more comfortable. But hey, if the server goes belly-up some day...I did my part, I reported it was failing early on. That's all I can do.

Who was it, Clifford Stoll? Who some years ago found something like a 17-cent discrepancy in some mainframe payments that unravelled into a major espionage affair? Or it could just be cosmic rays. Literally, IBM used to say that a server would take 4 data hit from cosmic rays, every year, year after year.
